Red Wolf 2,

How does the Coachmen Mirada handle the cold on the way down to warmer weather? Do you wait to de-winterize until you get to St George or Vegas?

The Mirada is a warm weather child. We stop once in Fort Hall, ID and then in Nephi, UT. We carry water in containers to get us by and use the WC with a liner. I de-winterize at Snow Canyon State Park near St. George. Works for us. We use two small space heaters to keep us warm when hooked-up and the furnace to warm up the coach in the AM. It's all good...

A rv dealer told me the Mirada also had furnace ducts to all the tanks and wasn't a problem. Are the Mirada tanks in the basement area where they could be heated?

Too Cool for school...

To answer the last question, the Mirada's tanks hang between the frame members, out in the open. No heat except what the weather may offer. We're in Nephi, UT this AM basking in sub-zero temps. Low was minus eleven. Hope it's warmer in St. George...

Very frustating. I have asked both Coachmen & RV dealer. They say all tanks are heated. I guess that means I will have to crawl under every MH I look at.

I appreciate the info.

I usually stop at the truck stop in Nephi over night. Not happy since Dennys took over that restaurant.

Not sure where you stay in Vegas but we really like Arizona Charlies. They treat us better than Sams Town.

We are bypassing Vegas and going to Page, enroute down to Cave Creek Regional Park, a favorite. Very nice here at Snow Canyon State Park, one of our most favorite places. Just ten minutes out of St. George. Don't miss it if you're in the area. In the forties yesterday with full sun. It's easy to see the tanks with the door to the "download" area open. Not much of a crawl, even for these ol' bones.

Green Valley was mentioned by another member. We have snowbird friends there and will be back later in the month.

Thanks all for checking in. Hasta la vista...

Hello from Sunny Montana, continued...

We've geen on the road for nearly a month now, down to southern AZ, a night in NM and a couple of week in TX, mostly in State Parks. We bought the TX State Park Pass and saved quite a bit. A few days in LA were a real pleasure. The beauty of the bayous is always a treat. Today we drove I-12 and I-10 through the rest of LA and through MS. We're now at Meaher State Park on Mobile Bay. We'll be here for four nights. Lots to see here. If anyone is around, drop me a message or text at ssash3@gmail.com or 406-431-0615. We'd love to visit... Hasta la vista, amigos!

We made it safely down to Cudjoe Key and back into Texas, so far. The weather has been mixed with more cold than we'd prefer. The Mirada has performed admirably. I'm having some problems with the Falcon II towbar. One side has rusted up and is stiff. The "latches" weren't hooking properly, but I used brake cleaner to free them up. Yankee ingenuity seems to be the best way to fix things. Their service department isn't much. Told me that I had "carbon build-up." Sheesh!
